.dat is actually a mpeg 1 video , same like dvd . DVD Is actually mpeg 2 video but when u explore u will see video files as .vob . so .dat is for vcd and vob is for dvd

As much I know .dat Is VCD File formet when u open a vcd u can see 5 folders with MPEGAV folder (.Dat video file live's here ) In windows HeroSDVD Player even Windows Media Player can play this . But In linux u can try ( Xine ; Mplyer ) if u have it . but i am not sure !
In Windows I easily rename *.dat to *.mpg and it works fine everywhere...Maybe that should work in Linux too?
